About the Work

Charles de Gaulle and his wife set up the Fondation Anne de Gaulle in 1945 in honor of their daughter Anne, who was born with Down syndrome. Despite providing residential care and support for people with neurodevelopmental conditions for more than 75 years, the Foundation suffered from a lack of public awareness. Our challenge was to redress the situation and give the Foundation and its worthy social cause the attention it deserves. We did this by shining a spotlight on the lineage and worldwide renown of General de Gaulle through one of the most enduring and international embodiments of this prominent figure in French history: Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport. How? By temporarily renaming it Paris-Anne De Gaulle. The challenge in terms of PR was to assert Fondation pioneering vision and leadership in this area, bolster awareness of its work and commitments, and at the same time build a transformative collective approach in honor of its partners which are also campaigning to change perceptions of disability and improve support for those concerned. We set up a partnership with one of France’s most popular radio stations, to ensure rolling coverage of the event for a large audience. The partnership with France Info comprised an exclusive announcement of the operation, radio spots promoting the Foundation, mention of the operation as part of news programs on December 1 and 2, followed by a live off-site broadcast from Terminal 2E at “Paris-Anne de Gaulle Airport”. Following the initial announcement, we distributed the press release to a broad range of regional, daily, specialized and international publications and coordinated the ramp-up across all media using various levers: - Take-up of the article by other online media and distribution of an Agence France Presse dispatch for print and online press. - Two Fondation Anne de Gaulle spokespersons deployed to maximize participation in TV and radio programs. - A large number of video uploads for social media and TV feeds on the day of the launch, focusing in particular on DuoDay+1. - Involvement of various political and institutional figures, social entrepreneurs and artists known for taking a stand on disability rights to ensure engagement across social networks.
